New York Times Lies Right to Our Faces, or More on Current Propaganda


WASHINGTON – March 18, 2019

The New York Times published a piece titled “Trump's Blistering Speech at CPAC Follows Bannon's Blueprint.” The article intentionally tried to mislead readers and cause chaos and panic by lying about what President Trump said during his CPAC speech.

From the NYT:

“His speech also included a promise to throw undocumented immigrants ‘the hell out of the country’ and a recitation of his law-and-order campaign promises.”

A keyword search of the transcript of the President’s speech for the term “undocumented” revealed that President Trump never even used that word, as the screenshot below indicates.

Below is what President Trump actually said during his CPAC speech.

From Time:

“We are also going to save countless American lives. As we speak today, immigration offers are finding the gang members, the drug dealers and the criminal aliens and throwing them the hell out of our country.”

Thus, the President was only referring to gang members, drug dealers and criminal aliens.

Any groups falsely reporting such activities are doing a disservice to those they claim to support.

An undisguised case of cynicism was when the NYT primarily accused Trump of calling the liberal media "fake news" and immediately afterwards published a fake about Trump.

Julie Davis is a well-known White House reporter for the NYT and also CNN, another fake news outlet. She was covering the President’s rally in Tennessee on May 30, 2018 and was totally disturbed by this:

Davis then vastly underestimated the crowd size at Trump’s rally, something that caught the attention of the President:

This is the correction Davis and the NYT issued approximately 16 hours after she was upset that Trump supporters see her as a purveyor of fake news:

Apparently what Davis meant was that she and the Times aren’t fake news expect for all of those times they publish fake news. In the liberal mind, that is a legitimate distinction.

Here’s the thing too: Davis didn’t actually make a bad guess and say that 5,500 people were really only 1,000. She did this on purpose to attack Trump, knowing that he likes to brag about his crowd sizes. This was not an honest mistake, it was a calculated lie. The only problem was that she got caught. That it came immediately after she was complaining about being labeled “fake news” makes it hilarious.

In a similar case, NYT published a photo deliberately reducing the number of people on it to show that Trump remains the lowest political force compared to Obama in 2015.

This concerns the annual the New England Patriots meeting, from which it followed that the alleged delegation of 2017 was much smaller than it was in 2015 to Obama. In fact, in 2015, they all stood next to the podium. And in 2017, some were placed behind the photographer on the lawn (as follows from the New England Patriots tweet). NYT recognized the fake-ish partially – allegedly there were more athletes in the 2015 delegation, and in 2017 more staff.

According to another scandalous NYT disclosure, the FBI investigation into Russian collusion began after drunken Trump campaign volunteer George Papadopoulos reportedly told Australian diplomat Alexander Downer at a London bar in May 2016 that "Russia had political dirt on Hillary Clinton." When DNC emails began to leak, Australia apparently contacted US intelligence to report the drunken admission by Papadopoulos, igniting the Russia probe.

This event turned out to be one of the loudest in the history of so-called journalism where reporters literally exposed Russian hackers, intelligence, and the whole government.

This is in stark contrast to GOP leaders who say that a salacious and unverified 34-page opposition research dossier triggered the probe, a claim repeated by President Trump on Tuesday:

Four days later, the New York Times crafted an alternate explanation involving Papadopoulos:

WASHINGTON — During a night of heavy drinking at an upscale London bar in May 2016, George Papadopoulos, a young foreign policy adviser to the Trump campaign, made a startling revelation to Australia’s top diplomat in Britain: Russia had political dirt on Hillary Clinton.

About three weeks earlier, Mr. Papadopoulos had been told that Moscow had thousands of emails that would embarrass Mrs. Clinton, apparently stolen in an effort to try to damage her campaign.

Exactly how much Mr. Papadopoulos said that night at the Kensington Wine Rooms with the Australian, Alexander Downer, is unclear. But two months later, when leaked Democratic emails began appearing online, Australian officials passed the information about Mr. Papadopoulos to their American counterparts, according to four current and former American and foreign officials with direct knowledge of the Australians’ role.

The NYT's reporter Adam Goldman who worked on the article as part of a six-person effort, tweeted the report, stating "Dossier had nothing to do with @FBI opening July 2016 investigation into Russian election meddling. George Papadopoulos outreach op and Russian hacking did," which the NYT's Maggie Haberman retweeted.

Unfortunately for the New York Times, much like CNN's botched "Bombshell" report from a few weeks ago that Donald Trump Jr. was told about the WikiLeaks emails before their release, only to issue a major correction because Trump Jr. was told after they were made public (by a random person), this "startling revelation" by the NYT that Papadopoulos spilled the beans about Russia having dirt on Clinton was already public information.

Cue the NYT getting split like a cord of wood by the Conservative Treehouse's TheLastRefuge, who dressed down the entire Papadopoulos narrative in a 21-tweet dissertation (below).

Meanwhile, as pointed out by The Gateway Pundit's Cristina Laila, the Washington Examiner's Byron York further tore into the NYT report:

Perhaps the most embarrassing part for the New York Times isn't that they appear to have published yet another massive case of fake news, but that it took six of their “best and brightest” to cobble it together.

In a video message posted online on May 6, 2017, Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu joined US President Trump in labeling CNN and the New York Times "fake news."

Netanyahu took issue with a series of reports in the Western press about a declaration from one faction of the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas that the group wants to restore the 1967 borders with Israel. The New York Times reported that "in an intensifying struggle for leadership of the Palestinian cause... ["Hamas Moderates"] are trying to offer a more mainstream-friendly version of its vision."

CNN's headline said: Hamas says it accepts '67 borders but doesn't recognize Israel.

Netanyahu called this "fake news" and asked: "Is moving from calling for genocide of all Jews to calling just for the annihilation of Israel – is that progress or moderation?"

"The new Hamas document says Israel has no right to exist. It says every inch of our land belongs to the Palestinians," Netanyahu explained. "It says there is no acceptable solution other than to remove Israel. So why does Hamas say there is a consensus for a smaller Palestinian state now? In order to destroy Israel later. They want to use their state to destroy our state."

"It's bad enough Hamas lies to the world. We don't also have to lie to ourselves," he added.
